Introduction

Introduction

PHOTOGRAPHY IS A universal language capable of communicating to a wide audience. But photography also is a very personal affair. No two of us approach it exactly the same way. You bring to bear your own personal experiences and influences every time you push the camera’s shutter-release button. Each image captures a moment in time seen through your eyes, processed by your way of seeing the world.

That’s the appeal of photography as a form of self-expression. It allows each of us to artfully interpret the world around us or create our own alternative reality. For many, it’s our principal creative outlet, producing images that can be easily shared with others.

With the advent of digital technology, photography has grown into one of the most popular hobbies in the world today. It’s the most accessible of all art forms. As a fun and affordable pastime, photography truly is the art of the masses.
